|Full reason for rating.Food Distribution|
Globalisation has the local production of food to become almost non-existent. This means that food is transported long distances to reach consumers. To reduce carbon emissions these food chains will have to be reduced, leaving areas / countries that have populations that cannot be sustained by local food production with food shortages and possibly famine.
Cost of living impact
The reduction of `greenhouse gasses` demands the removal of coal and other fossil fuels from the energy mix. This will have a serious impact on the cost of energy as coal is, at the moment(2021), the cheapest energy available.Wind and solar energy sources are not a 24/7 solution, so it will have to be supplemented with nuclear or some other form of reliable 24/7 energy.The target of 2050 to reach net zero CO2 emissions cannot be achieved, as a nuclear power station takes around 30 years to commission.
Acceptance by population
The people have been conditioned to be totally against nuclear power stations for decades. Now all of a sudden, nuclear power is promoted as a `clean` energy source. No justification has been provided on why nuclear is now such a great energy source.
Not In My Backyard
The next problem is to find a place to build these power stations. Even though some people that accept nuclear as the alternate to coal, they will be anti-nuclear if such a power station will be built close to where they live.€
